Vegan Instant Chocolate Chia Mousse Recipe

I am currently 34 weeks pregnant and am constantly craving sweets. I was feeling way too guilty about wanting naughty food all the time so I decided that i really needed to create a quick and easy recipe that nipped my chocolate craving in the bud but was also nutritious. This is the perfect instant dessert. It is:
 vegan... tick!
moussey... tick!sweet... tick!
delicious... tick!
quick... tick!
easy... tick!
healthy! ... tick!
filling... tick!
I believe it is perfectly acceptable for breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert for everyone... not just the pregnant ladies! Mia who is 21 months at the moment absolutely loves this... she calls chocolate "cock-cock" which can sometimes attract strange looks in public. I know her "cock-cock" face... it is a grumpy look, normally when she has just woken up and is craving something deliciously cocoa-ey and sweet. This is the perfect little treat for her to have on occasion. I created this recipe about 10 days ago and have already made it for myself more than five times! I think that is saying something. So, please have a try as I know it will become your go-to guilt-free chocolatey treat. Enjoy!
